It’s one of the Dreams of thousands .People come from all over the world to travel on this road. It’s like travelling along Glacier Alley but a serious word of warning, these Glaciers are endangered, seriously endangered. They are melting down at an ever increasing speed. Global warming is visible every Kilometer you drive. We know this road intimately, we have travelled it many, many times. I have taken dozen’s of photos and COMPARED.
SO GET OUT AND TRAVEL THIS ROAD, IT IS IN GREAT CONDITION, RARELY WILL SOMEONE SPEED, What for ?
Take your time, there are many places to stop and enjoy nature at its very finest. You will NEVER regret it, honestly.

The scenery from Banff to Jasper by road was amazing taking in lake Louise, and the Athabasca glacier that we actually walked upon.

The emptiness and scale of Canada was huge. Waterfalls aplenty with lots of wildlife such as eagles and deer. A very scenic place.

We took the sundog tours shuttle for $79 to get from Banff to Jasper. It picked us up from the car park behind the Mount Royal hotel promptly at 2:30pm, and it does also pick up from other major hotels too. The ride itself was very comfortable with leather seating. We passed through Lake Louise around 3:30pm and we were lucky enough to get a couple of minutes to view the Lake itself. There was also a restroom stop at the lake Louise village. We arrived in at Jasper around 7pm.

My wife and I used Sun Dog to transfer from Banff to Jasper. 11 hour tour included many stops at Lake Louise, Columbia Icefields, Lake Athabasca Falls and many more. Company provided water, drinks, sandwiches on the trip. Very relaxed, informative way to transfer and tour. Our driver Chris was brilliant, friendly, informative, knowledgeable, a safe driver who kept us entertained the whole day. Could not recommend this tour more highly or Chris who was one of the best guides I have had in any country. He made the day memorable. Very good value as it includes entrance to the Icefields.

The transfer was strictly a job to be done by the driver. There was no communication to the passengers on what was happening whenever he stopped ie was it 5 minutes or more, could we leave the bus to stretch our legs or not (it was a 4 hour journey)?
The driver dropped us at our hotel in Jasper, as expected. Did his job, no more no less.

Our driver (Harry I think) was brilliant and very knowledgeable. It was great to combine a tour and transfer in one. The ice fields were very cold and we got soaked but interesting to see. I didn’t like the skywalk as I don’t like heights but that’s a personal thing. On the whole an enjoyable trip and worth doing.

Norm our driver was fantastic. It was raining and sleet on the glacier, with the wind making it very cold. Make sure you have appropriate gear just in case! The weather created issues for the people who run the ice explore and sky walk and they made some errors with our activity scheduling which meant that we ended up being very delayed getting into Japser. Unfortinately this too meant that we were unable to make any of the planned stops after the ice fields and I missed seeing Athabasca falls. Our driver tried to resolve the issues the Ice Centre staff created, but there was nothing he could do to make up the time. We had sufficient time at every stop we were able to make. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking at travelling from Banff to Jasper or vice versa

Brilliant tour. Our guide Chuck was really knowledgable about Canada and it’s Geology & Wildlife.
We were in awe about the amount of information he told us all really interesting. Great picnic lunch provided, plenty to eat and drink.
We didn’t have to queue at the Icefield or Skywalk. Plenty of stops along the way to stretch legs, washroom breaks and to look at interesting viewpoints.
Highly recommended

The driver is an old man living in Banff area for decades. He knew a crazy lot of personal stories about various locations in Banff. It was a very informative tour. But it might be a bit expensive for just a 1-day tour.

Well what can I say, from the moment Norm picked us up from the Moose Hotel in Banff until he dropped us at The Sawridge in Jasper we had the time of our lives. This trip was a long day, 10 hours, but Norm kept us fed, watered and entertained the whole time.
Many thanks Norm especially the wildlife sightings.
